iTunes Sales Drop?
My iPhone app iWik has been floating around 48-50 on the “Top Paid iPhone App” list for the last month. To keep that spot in popularity I used to have to sell around 1,600 copies a day. It seems that it has dropped in the last week to about 1,000 sales per 24-hours. However, I’m still in the same spot.
Has the economic crisis in the US caused total sales to drop for iTunes? I wouldn’t be surprised. People thinking twice about dropping $1-$5 on something they don’t really need.
I wonder if this is hitting the entire for-pay software market? Its not a total business killer, but its definitely a drop in numbers. 1,000 would not have kept me on that list just a few weeks ago.
PS: This lack of an NDA is cool….
